Sunday, CBS News posted on Twitter a video from a hysterical woman, crying over what she said was the lack of concern for nurses, meant obviously to cast fear among the public who are mostly shut in their homes and helpless over the current events.
The video was a hoax.
“I quit my job today, and I wanted to work, I was assigned to a COVID patient on an ICU unit that has been converted to a designated COVID unit. None of the nurses are wearing masks, ” the woman said in the CBS video.
CBS News felt this was an important news story, and at the time of this post, their story had reached over 5 million views on Twitter alone.
The video carried the messaging that CBS News has been pushing in their social media campaigns highlighting nurses who are fear-ridden, at President Donald J. Trump’s press conferences, and with CBS allies on social media that America is not prepared to manage the COVID Pandemic.
In tears, a nurse says she quit her job after she was asked to work in a coronavirus ICU without a face mask: “America is not prepared, and nurses are not being protected” https://t.co/ywoSuLOPYP pic.twitter.com/S5BsnlO5nt

Quickly after the original post was made, posters on Twitter had uncovered the woman’s Instagram account, which helped them expose the CBS hoax.
CARDI B WANNA BE?
The following footage shows the nurse/ actress mimicking the personality known as Cardi B, who entertained social media in early April with a video about Corona Virus.
Compare to the Cardi B original:

Where did this woman come from and why did CBS not investigate her background and mental health status?
The woman is known as “nurse.iv” and “nurse.iv4” and social media accounts are full of sexually suggestive poses and content, similar to Cardi B, she shows off a large bottom.
CBS news added music and captions to her Instagram video, so they edited the content.
Citizen investigators vetted the woman and found her accounts where she says that she is “bi-polar” and struggles with understanding reality.
Remember when Jussie Smollett was paraded by #FakeNewsMedia because it hurt Trump …
Meet the crying nurse. @CBS you make the Enquirer look 💯 Legitimate 🙄

Nurse IV had been on the job for one day, according to Investigative journalist, Jordan Schachtel.
Ok turns out I was too friendly about the timeline. The lady quit on her first day back on the job. https://t.co/gkNjOYXLTm

The actress did change her story, in a twitter conversation with Democrat Presidential nominee candidate, Bernie Sanders.
Thank you so much for sharing Senator. We were each assigned 1 N95 per 1 covid patient’s room but was not allowed to wear it outside of the room, wear our own N95 mask around the Nurses station or Halls, which I came prepared with. HCPs absolutely deserve protection by any means. https://t.co/0bs0MZ78v2

She carries the messaging nonetheless.
Say whatever you’d like & cherry pick to create w/e rumors u like: I STAND FIRM! My experience is real just like THOUSANDS OF other HCPs & essential workers who’s lives are like a commodity instead of priority during a PANDEMIC! #PPE #letusprotectourselves https://t.co/wKJbDVQdm4
